VIDEO: Lewandowski bids emotional farewell to Dortmund

Polish striker given perfect send off by fans as Borussia Dortmund beat Hoffenheim 3-2.

Borrusia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski was given the perfect send off at the Westfalenstadion, as he prepares to join Bayern Munich in the summer.

Lewandowski failed to score in his final home appearance for the club as they downed Hoffenheim 3-2, but he was given rapturous applause as he bid farewell to the Dortmund faithful.

The Pole has scored 101 goals in 182 appearances for the club since joining from Lech Poznań in 2010, and has helped them to two Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final.

Lewandowski will join Bayern Munch in the summer, having agreed a deal to sign for the German Champions earlier in the season. Bayern reportedly fended off interest from the likes of Manchester United and for the strikers signature, as he joins Pep Guardiola’s men to try and win back their European crown next season.

The 25-year-old cut an emotional figure as he waved goodbye to the Dortmund fans on Saturday.

Lewandowski was given flowers and a collage of pictures as his farewell gift from Dortmund, and looked on the brink of tears as he bid farewell to the fans.

The striker leaves Dortmund with a great goal-scoring record from the last four seasons, averaging more than 25 a season. Lewandowski memorably scored four goals at the Westfalenstadion against Real Madrid in a Champions League semi-final in 2013, spearheading the club to the final at Wembley.

He will now lead the line for Bayern next season, putting the futures of names such as Mario Mandzukic in doubt, as he continues to be linked with Chelsea.
